Hazelnut, Goat Cheese, And Baby Greens Salad With Hazelnut Chardonnay Dressing

  • Yield: 4 servings


  • 1 cup hazelnuts
  • 1/4 cup Chardonnay or other dry white wine
  • 1/2 cup hazelnut oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 12 ounces baby greens
  • 8 ounces goat cheese, such as Montrachet, crumbled


  • Preheat the oven to 350?F.
  • Spread the hazelnuts on a baking sheet. Bake, stirring occasionally, until the skins are cracked and peeling, about 10 minutes. Wrap the nuts in a kitchen towel and let cool for 10 minutes. Rub the nuts in the towel to remove most of the skins. Let cool completely.
  • Chop 3/4 cup of the hazelnuts. Place the wine in a small bowl and gradually whisk in the oil. Add the chopped hazelnuts, season with the salt and pepper, and whisk well to combine. Place the greens in a bowl and toss with the dressing.
  • Divide the greens among four salad plates. Crumble the goat cheese over the greens, sprinkle with the reserved 1/4 cup whole hazelnuts, and serve.
